If you're one of the many people suffering from chronic jaw pain, headaches, or other symptoms of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, you know how much these issues can impact your daily life. What you may not realize is that the solution to your problems could lie in complete dentistry.

The TMJ Connection

The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ, is the joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull. When this joint and the surrounding muscles don't work together properly, it can lead to a range of uncomfortable symptoms, such as:

  • Jaw pain
  • Clicking or popping sounds when opening or closing your mouth
  • Headaches
  • Facial pain
  • Difficulty chewing or speaking

These issues can be caused by a variety of factors, including misaligned bites, teeth grinding, and even poor posture.

Traditional Dentistry vs. Complete Dentistry

While traditional dentistry may provide temporary relief for TMJ symptoms, it often fails to address the underlying causes of the disorder. Complete dentistry, on the other hand, takes a holistic approach to oral health, examining the relationships between the teeth, jaws, and muscles.

By looking at the big picture, complete dentistry can help identify the root causes of TMJ disorders and develop a comprehensive treatment plan to alleviate symptoms and improve overall oral function.

How Complete Dentistry Can Help

Dr. Kyle Bogan, a leading provider of complete dentistry, uses advanced diagnostic tools to assess the health of your TMJ and develop a personalized treatment plan. This may include:

  • CBCT Scans: These 3D images provide a detailed view of your jaw and surrounding structures, allowing Dr. Bogan to identify any underlying issues.
  • Jaw Tracking Technology: This technology records the movement of your jaw, helping Dr. Bogan understand how your bite and TMJ function together.
  • Bite Adjustment: By making precise adjustments to your bite, Dr. Bogan can help alleviate pressure on your TMJ and reduce symptoms.
  • Orthodontics or Restorative Procedures: In some cases, orthodontic treatment or restorative procedures may be necessary to correct misaligned bites or repair damaged teeth that contribute to TMJ issues.
